6:00pm
bullpen. i'm bill o'reilly. please remember the spin stops here. we are definitely looking out for you. breaking tonight, president obama addresses his critics about the disastrous role out of the health care overhaul. for the first time, revises his now broken promise if you like your plan you can keep your plan. now has a bunch of qualifiers directly from the president. i'm meb. welcome. this is "the kelly file." the president is just returning from boston this hour after wrapping up a fiery, at times highly partisan speech about his health care law. it took 20 minutes bf he addresseded the newest obama care controversy -- b what about that now infamous pledge that was at the heart of this law's passage that if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor the. if you like your insurance, you
6:01pm
can keep your insurance. he said repeatedly, i guarantee it. period. but it's not true. 2 million so far have lost their plans. that number is expected to grow. it could top 10 million, 14 million. here's how the president explained the issue today. >> now, if you had one of the substandard plans before the affordable care act became law and you really like that plan, you are able to keep it. that's what i said when i was running for office. that was part of the promise we made. >> mm-hmm. the president had little choice but to the speak to the issue somehow. even b the washington post fact checker today labeled mr. obama's many guarantees on this issue a, quote, whopper. giving it four of four pinocchios saying his promise apparently came with a very large caveat. if you like your health care plan you can keep your health care plan if, if we the
6:02pm
government deem it adequate. meantime back in boston president obama expanded on what the promise means now. >> today that promise means that every plan in the marketplace covers a core set of minimum benefits. >> all of the plans will now cover that. what happened to all the people who were supposed to keep their plans that maybe didn't cover all the benefits and they didn't care? it turns out someone decided for them that their insurance didn't work. washington didn't like it. the government wanted those americans to have something different. so here is the new promise tonight. >> for the vast majority of people who have health insurance that work, you can keep it. for the fewer than 5% of americans who buy insurance on your own, you will be getting a better deal. >> just take it, enjoy it, and be quiet. mark thiessen is a former speech
6:03pm
writer for president george w. bush. now a vast majority can keep it and for the pesky 5% that keep complaining, just enjoy obama care. why do you keep complaining? >> the vast majority. he didn't say the vast majority in 2009. he said if you like your plan, you get to keep it, no matter what, period. this wu an exercise in dishonesty and revisionist history. do you remember george w. bush's famous 16 words on iraq? barack obama has 16 words he needs to answer for. if you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. those 16 words, he lied us into obama care. >> you feel this was no accident? i know you believe it was a lie. >> yes. >> you believe it was intentional, designed because they knew all along that this is going to happen in the market
6:04pm
and they needed it. >> absolutely. he almost admitted it. he said today, quote, if you are getting one of the letters, cancellation letters, just join obama care. first of all, you can't because the website doesn't work. if you could, that was their plan all along. the problem is in the individual market most of the people are healthy people who don't use a lot of services. in order to fund obama care they need at least 2 million people, healthy people who don't use a lot of services to leave the individual market and join exchanges so they can cover and subsidize the poor and the sick. as you pointed out, 2 million people are losing their plans. it is the perfect gnu. there will be more. those people are coming in. they wrote the regulation specifically to make sure those people lose their plans so they have nowhere else to go but obama care. >> it's fascinating. you hear the testimonials of the rp i chose the plan that was not so great is because i'm pretty healthy.
6:05pm
my wife's healthy. >> yep. >> we don't use a lot of insurance. we have it there just in case. >> yeah. >> we chose the plan to work for us so we could have a low premium and so on. your feeling is the administration also understood it and said those are exactly the kind of people we need to pay more to fund the expanding medicaid roles we'll have under obama care and the government subsidies we are promising under obama care. there is only one way to get them. that's to get them out of the insurance plan they have while i'm telling everybody they can keep the plan they have. >> that's exactly right. he was talking today about substandard plans. this they are pushing people out of what they call substandard plans into plans with mandates like maternity care, substance abuse care, vision care. what if you are a guy who's healthy and doesn't plan to get pregnant, doesn't use drugs and has 20/20 vision. you don't need that stuff. they are pushing you into exchanges where you are going to get the stuff you don't want rs don't need and in a lot of cases
6:06pm
subsidized by the taxpayers. that's what they are doing. >> that's the irony. you have americans who are paying the full bill on their premiums happy with their coverage. now that's been cancelled. they have to move to the exchanges and the american taxpayer has to subsidize a policy they don't want and don't need. >> maternity care for guys like me. congratulations. >> thank you for the image. see you, mark. >> thanks, megyn. >> the health and human services secretary went to capitol hill. she had to face questions about her responsibility here and the president's. watch. >> so you are saying the president is not responsible for hhs? >> sir, i didn't say that. >> so the president is ultimately responsible. it's great that you are a team player and taking responsibility it is the president's ultimate responsibility, correct? >> you clearly -- whatever. yes. he is the president.
6:07pm
he is responsible for government programs. >> texas congressman joe barton was one questioning ms. sebelius. what of the comment, sir. "whatever." there's been a lot of talk b about it today. some say it was dismissive of her. conveyed an attitude of why do i have to be here in front of you people. >> it goes to the heart of the obama administration. they are more into perception and feeling than they are into governing. i used the line about the wizard of oz. in oz it's more important what the perception is than the reality. and the secretary today obviously felt we should just believe her and the president that they want to happy these people and not pin her down on the reality. >> she said hold me accountable. she said, okay, i'm responsible. hold me accountable. how? they say she still has the confidence of the white house. he's not ready to fire her. no one is getting fired though we have wasted hundreds of
6:08pm
millions of the taxpayers' money on a website that doesn't work while we are cancelling people's insurance. who will be held accountable? >> she'll be held accountable and the president will be held accountable. >> how? >> this website is a debacle. obama care. the president said if you like your health care plan you can keep it. >> we know that. respectfully, sir. we know that. the question is how will they be held accountable? she said, hold me accountable. how? can barack obama -- he's the only one who can do it. is there pressure on him? do you believe she should be fired? if not, who should be? where is the accountability? >> we are going to bring the secretary back after the end of november deadline that the b website is supposed to be up. chairman upton, i and several members of the committee sent the secretary a letter based on the testimony of the contractors
6:09pm
last week. chairman of the intelligence committee mike rogers asked her questions today. >> we'll get to that in a minute. questions about how safe people's information is. 2k3wed. >> they will fix the lack of privacy. that's one thing she did positively agree the to do that. the code that says no reasonable expectation of personal privacy, they will take that out. >> they have you sign away your expectations of privacy when you get on the obama care exchange website. there are people on there and they have no choice. in order to go b on they have to sacrifice their privacy and sign a waiver. >> she did say that was wrong and they will fix it. >> thank you for bebeing here. >> thank you. >> we want to hear your obama care story. tell us what you are experiencing. good, bad, ugly, in between. go to the facebook page or send me a tweet. we are reading your stories.
6:10pm
we'll try to investigate your issues. and charles krauthammer says there is much more on the line for the president than just getting people insured. he's next on how we could be watching an historical moment in washington politics. we have heard him talk on special report about what he thought about kathleen sebelius. what did he think about the president's remarks about how, you know, we have taken care of it. just -- there it is. go buy on the obama care exchange if you're unhappy about being cancelled. plus, it is bad enough the obama care website was down even as the secretary was speaking today. we'll show you the security warnings. these are ones that are much bigger and a bigger story and involves your most private information which remains compromised and about which we have no promises. also, new york's police commissioner denied a chance to speak when some rowdy crowds shouted him off the stage.

6:13pm
the president returning to the white house here. we are getting pictures in now after his trip to boston and his speech defending his health care plan. many critics describe the roll out of the signature piece of
6:14pm
legislation -- criticizing it. if obama care does go down the tubes it could set back the president's legacy and the entire liberal movement for what could be a generation. dr. charles krauthammer is a fox news contributor and author of the new book "things that matter." great to see you. why do you say that? >> pleasure to be here. there is a lot more at stake than we think. it is not just the fate of health care. it's not just the fate of the democrats. it's not even the fate of the president. i do think his presidency is in jeopardy. he could lose -- he could become a lame duck very early if this continues to unravel. what's really at stake here is if this thing goes south, if obama care truly self-destructs, i don't know that it's certain, but i would say right now it is more than likely. i think it will set back american liberalism p for a
6:15pm
decade at least. the reason is this. obama care is not just any piece of legislation. it's not like immigration. not like a tax hike. obama care is the core of the new expansion of the liberal idea. this is sort of the continuation of the new deal. the continuation of a great society. in a sense the way liberals portrayed it, it is the completion of the entitlement state. the one element that separated us from the rest of the advanced industrial countries saying we were the only one with people who were not covered. now we're going to enter into the realm of those who insure and protect everybody. if this collapses, this huge expansion of the entitlement state, this essential nationalization of one sixth of the u.s. economy, i think that discredits the entire enterprise of the expansion of government which is at the heart of
6:16pm
obamaism. that's why liberals are running zar escared. not just one election. it's the ideology that the government knows best, the government will take care of you. put your trust in the government or as obama said you didn't build it, the government did. it can't even construct a website. >> when you hear what the president said today, there are tones of big government in there. and the message and reliance on big government. the president is saying, look, it's for the vast majority of people who have insurance. if you had health insurance we feel works, you can keep it. this is the government speaking to us. for 5% of americans who buy insurance on your own, you will get a better deal. we are giving you a better deal. what do you hear in that? >> you are hearing the essence of new liberal ichl. this is the ultimate
6:17pm
paternalism. this is jay carney explaining the president and the president himself today saying, look, the only reason we are cancelling your plans is because you are too stupid to understand what you need. we are giving you a better plan. sure, you like the plan. sure, you chose the plan. sure, you paid for the plan and renewed the plan. but you don't even understand that this is substandard as defined by a bunch of experts that we slapped together to issue regulations in washington. it is the essence of the entitlement state, the essence of the nanny state. you can't have a drink over 16 ounces. you can't have health insurance you chose and you like as a free citizen because we know it is not good enough. that's the essence of obama care. it is the essence of the larger project of liberalism. it was grating today when you heard it. >> he didn't come out and say let me be honest. i know i said "period."
6:18pm
i know i said this is a guarantee sh period. i was wrong. this is how i was wrong. there wasn't even an honest, let me tell it to you straight now. you know 2 million of you have been cancelled so far and it's likely to be 10, 14, 15 million. there was a just enjoy it. just go to the exchanges. does that hurt him? do people who loved the president and believed his words on baobama care now start to sa wow, wait a minute. >> some of the ak lites have religious investment in obama. they are not going to change. empirical reality facts won't alter it. there is a vast number of americans who want to give the president the benefit of the doubt. he is the president. the only one we have. he's the leader. look at the pattern here. it's not just obama care on benghazi. did he ever say, you know, we got it wrong.
6:19pm
it really wasn't spontaneous. unlike what the secretary of state said, the this really matters? there is a difference? you know, i regret that you were misled. no. he pretended they had always been saying the same thing or that they were acting on the intelligence of the intelligence community which was not true. he's got a pattern. i can't remember once in the five years of the presidency where he ever said, i got it wrong. here's why i got it wrong. what's so interesting is that from history we know when a president levels with the american people, he benefits. >> mm-hmm . >> kennedy admitted the bay of pigs. he said it was a mistake and said, i'm responsible and no one else. his numbers shot up astrono, ma'am -- astrono, ma'amcally. when we see candor which is rare today, americans appreciate it.
6:20pm
i believe the president is so arrogant he doesn't understand how it would help himself? >> charles krauthammer, thank you for being here. by the way, loved the special on you. >> thank you very much. >> your life and your book. good luck with it. >> thank you. >> one more critical moment from today's hearing. secretary sebelius was challenged on whether the president is keeping his promise to america. wait until you hear what she said. she was directly asked, "is he keeping the promise -- if you like your insurance you can keep it." wait until you hear what she said. and new revelations that the administration did know health care.gov was riddled with threats to your security. that's coming up. >> you have exposed millions of americans because you all, according to your memo, believed it was an acceptable risk.

6:24pm
from the world headquarters of fox news it's "the kelly file" with megyn kelly. >> we're back with one of the top stories from today's health care hearing. a leaked government memo revealing that just days before the obama care rollout the website was deemed a high security risk. yet they proceeded. today republican congressman mike rogers accused secretary sebelius of knowingly exposing americans' most personal information. watch. >> you accepted a risk on behalf of every user of this computer that put their personal financial information at risk because you did not even have the most basic end to end test on security of the system. you have exposed millions of americans because you all, according to your memo, believed it was an acceptable risk. would you commit today to shut
6:25pm
down the system and do a security test -- >> no, sir. >> joining me now, monica crowley, host of the monica crowley show and president and ceo of whitman insight strategies. this is a serious charge. basically forget the technicalities about the website which we assume will will get fixed eventually. that this personal security information of the people who have gone on there is ready for the plucking by some hacker. >> and they knew ahead of time and went ahead with launching the website because they were afraid of political ramifications of not launching. they were willing to expose americans to theft, identity fraud, criminal activity that they could now be exposed to because they inputted their information. they knew it and didn't do anything about it is a serious problem. >> if you got kicked off your plan as you were told you wouldn't. then were kicked off.
6:26pm
you enter your information, get identity theft. how could they assume the risk? >> there is no question the roll out was a disaster. to the suggest that people's personal security information, financial information was a risk is completely wrong. it is grandstanding, hyperbolizing. >> mike roger shs? >> rogers was grandstanding on the sunday morning talk shows days before this. the memo said there were potential risks, not a shred of evidence to suggest that anyone's personal information has, was or ever would be potentially compromised. unlike the data breaches from aol or t.j. maxx where information was released there is no evidence that any information was at risk. >> this is just the beginning. one of the other things was the fact that health care.gov was
6:27pm
hacked last week. lord know where the personal information is now. the problem for team obama is this this. if they want people to come to the website and enroll in exchanges, if they have been burned already once. if they can't get in, if the information has been exposed and they have been compromised the idea of getting them back a second or third time to try out the website, to enroll will be greatly reduced. once people have been burned once, exposed or compromised they are not going to do it again. >> we should the talk to the hacker about getting on health care.gov. >> that's another misstatement. the site wasn't hacked. someone said there is a possibility of vulnerability. but hacking actually didn't occur. the problem i have with this is unfortunately the botched roll out has taken over the story and unfortunately the people aren't seeing the benefits that obama care has. >> i will tell you now -- >> people have free preventative care. 13 million people that couldn't
6:28pm
get coverage because they had pre-existing conditions can get coverage. seniors saved billions. that's the story. why? because of a botched rollout from the administration. >> if the website had gone perfectly the story would be that the president broke his promise and those 13 million who got coverage because they got pre-existing conditions covered are balanced out by the 14 million or so about to get cancelled. thanks to obama care. the whole point was to see if people to didn't have insurance -- >> the exact opposite is happening. the insured are becoming uninsured. >> and the taxpayers are subsidizing them and they were happily paying for themselves before. in some cases. thank you. we have breaking news from the wall street journal. an eye opening poll on the president released moments ago. we'll have it for you after the break. and the vet raps affairs department under fire for months
6:29pm
because they didn't have time to help thousands of struggling vets. today they were questioned on what they have been doing. wait until you hear one executive's response. >> with all due respect, mr. chairman, on the advice of my counsel i decline to answer based on my 5th amendment constitutional privilege. and just give them the basics, you know. i got this.

6:33pm
their health care plans can keep them despite the passage of obama care. here is marcia blackburn challenging secretary sebelius this morning on that. >> madam the secretary, before during and after the law was passed the president said if you like your health care plan you can keep it. is he keeping his promise? >> yes, he isle. >> joining me frank palon. congressman, thank you for being here. >> thank you. >> we are struggling to understand how ms. sebelius can say the president kept the promise of if you like your health care you can keep it, period, i guarantee it. when we have seen 2 million americans have policies canc cancelled so far. >> you can keep it if the insurance company agrees to continue to sell it but a lot of
6:34pm
them are selling lousy plans that are skeletal and don't provide benefits. they are cancelling those. many of them are a scam and saying, we are not going to sell this because nobody will buy it. we'll give you a better plan at a more affordable price. the president never said he could stop the insurance companies from cancelling plans. this is a private market. this is a competitive market. >> okay. that's only partly true. there are some insurance companies who cancelled policies. that's -- >> they cancelled the policies -- >> let me just -- >> it's a private market. >> let me pose the question. then you respond. some insurance companies said, all right, we'll cancel policies. that happens on the insurance market. >> right. >> but many, many other policies -- in fact, according to the insurance companies the vast majority of policies being cancelled are being cancelled because the the regulations imposed on them by obama care left them with no choice. >> that's absolutely not true.
6:35pm
they have a right to continue the policies -- >> she admitted it today, sir. >> she did not. it's not true. >> she was asked about whether -- the. >> insurance companies can cancel policies if they want to. they can offer policies at the same price for the same lousy wft benefits. >> if they change the policies in any way obama care requires that they be cancelled and people get kicked off. >> that's not true. >> yes. she was asked about it today by a $5 increase in the premium. >> it's not true. obama care -- >> let's run the sound bite. $5 change and -- >> obama care says -- >> stand b by. >> if coinsurance went up by any amount, even by a dollar according to your regulations, that would not qualify as a grandfathered clause for the record. i gather even by a dollar. >> dr. cassidy, i want to start with the amount you gave isn't accurate. i was told $5, not a dollar. >> she's not saying, no, you are
6:36pm
wrong. they can't cancel people if it changes by five dollars. she says if they up the premium by $5 it's cancelled. they get the notice and wonder where to get insurance. >> they tell them where to get insurance. look, if you are selling a lousy policy at a price that's too high nobody is going to buy it. >> that's not true. >> they know people won't buy them. it's a competitive marketplace. >> but they were buying them. >> but they won't buy them anymore when they have -- >> they like them. >> when they have a better alternative. >> thanks to you. >> well, i can't go out as an insurance policy and sell a lousy policy at a high price. >> why do you get to decide what's lousy? why can't the american people say it's lousy for you. for me, i like it. >> it's capitalism. you can go out and buy whatever you want, but the insurance
6:37pm
company realizes they can't sell this lousy insurance policy anymore. >> they were selling it. you are ignoring my point. they were selling it. 15 million americans thought it was great. you didn't like it, but they liked it. you and the president -- >> there are better alternatives. >> they could keep it, period. when you make a guarantee -- >> if you can't sell it, nobody will buy it if there is a better alternative out there that gives you better insurance for a lower price. that's what the affordable care act offers. that's why the insurance companies are cancelling. they know they can't sell that lousy policy anymore. >> it's not true. >> it is true. of course it's true. you deny it but -- >> we'll let the viewers decide. >> let the marketplace decide. >> the marketplace would like to decide but they have been told by the president and democrats thanks to obama care they can't. >> it's a list private market. >> it isn't. the capitalist private market is controlled by laws including obama care which imposed regulations with which they must now comply. >> you can't sell the policy if
6:38pm
nobody will buy it because it's lousy. >> 15 million people bought it! they were told they could keep it and now they can't. i have to go, period. thank you, sir. >> i tried. it's so much better when you can have an exchange on the actual issues. listen. send me a tweet and let me know what you think. in the middle of the difficulties people are having with the websites we decided to check in with the obama care navigators who are supposed to help people through the process of applying for health insurance plans under the new system they are supposed to love so much. trace gallagher is live in the west coast newsroom. >> we know the federal health care website is a mess. a lot of the state websites are down. if you go to health care.gov and put in your city or state they will give you a list of the navigators. these are people who are
6:39pm
supposed to help you navigate the wednesday or fill out an old-fashioned paper application. so we calleded four different states. arizona, montana, iowa and mississippi. these are states have been trouble with their websites. we made 27 calls in these four states and nine of those navigators were ready and willing to help us. four were unable the to help at all including a man in mississippi who had no idea what i was talking about and a man in montana who is certified to help but recommended that we call back in november when the website is up and running. five of the called went right to voicemail. eight, we could not get through to anyone. the bottom line here is if i was trying to sign up for health care today i couldn't get on the website. what happens is i would have to juice the phone. i have a one in three chance of getting through to any of these navigators by using the phone.

a little frustrating. >> i can relate to that feeling right now, trace. thank you. coming up, new york city police commissioner ray kelly and former new york city mayor rudy giuliani both support the stop and frisk policy that's helped reduce crime in new york city. a group of students protesting the commissioner's speech at brown university may need a quick lesson on respect for those who whom they disagree. the american dream is of a better future, a confident retirement. those dreams, there's just no way we're going to let them die. ♪ like they helped millions of others. by listening. planning. working one on one.

[ shouting ] >> who does not want to hear ray kelly? >> we have concluded. we'll ask that everyone please leave the auditorium. [ cheers ] >> wow. that was the scene at respected brown university tuesday night. new york police commission ray kelly shouted off the stage by students and community members who clearly skipped class on the day they were talking about the way we conduct debate in this country. joining me now, former new york city mayor rudy giuliani who created the stop and frisk program which is what they were so upset about. he showed up and said, i will
6:45pm
talk about it. he was going to have a robust q & a. they said, there will be no q, no a, just get out. your thoughts? >> that's what censorship is all about. being an idealogue. stop and frisk and other programs i started with bill bratton taken over by mike and ray kelly has saved 20,000 lives, 10,000 lives. >> they say it's racist. >> do you know the lives saved? 8 of 10 african-american lives. 8 of 10 of the murder victims if you reduce murder by 80% which is what i and mike blumberg did. whose lives are we saving? i'm proud of it. there were 30 years of nobody
6:46pm
caring about saving lives. giving political rhetoric and papandreouering. we saved lives. they just fooled people. >> the students went out at brown university with signs -- typical stuff. linking ray kelly to the kkk, calling him a racist. his name is ray kelly. calling him ray-cyst kelly. >> what kind of education are they getting? >> the president of the university said this is an affront to civil democratic society and the university's core values. >> did anybody tell them ray kelly was appointed by bill clinton. he's a democrat. he was a united states marine. this is a man -- >> not even allowed to speak. >> he's kept the city safe from terrorism on september 11 of 2001. if you asked how many times we would be attacked after that, i would have said eight, ten times.
6:47pm
the policies have kept the city safe from terrorism. stop and frisk is not the only thing. there are four or five other equally important programs. it is aer part of it. another thing that happened in the city that ray opposes. police officers will be sued if they make a mistake over stop and frisk. don't you think that will stop police officers from being overly proactive. they will say, hey, my child's enl indication is at stake if i make a mistake. we need police to be proactive. the police used to sit back and wait to make arrests. i changed them into a police force that's proactive, tries to prevent crime. ray and mike have continued and done a good job. >> one of the bedrocks of the country's foundation is not less speech, it's more speech. you have a back and forth. he says what he feels. they could have challenged him. they just wanted to shut down the speech. i want to ask you about
6:48pm
something important. there is a group called the m.e.k. which was on our state department's terrorist list. >> right. >> now you are backing that group in what way? >> so is ed randell . >> and howard dean. >> how about general jones and admiral mullen. >> john bolden. >> two of the last three heads of the joint chiefs of staff. >> why do you care? >> these people are anti-iranian government. anti-religious government in iran. they are a secular group. the reason for their alleged terrorism in the past is their opposition to the mullahs. don't we oppose them also? they are an organization that has the possibility of creating the government in iran. right now in iraq, our government, our military promised them protection back in 2003.
6:49pm
that promise is being broken by the obama administration. they are meeting with malaki now. the president should realize what he's created in iraq is a client state of iran. malaki is working for the mullahs. not an ally of ours. >> you see it as a window to exploit. >> a hundred of them have been killed already. the reason lives won't be saved is the administration is engaged in a negotiation with iran and they want iran happy. it is not our job to keep iran happy. it is our job to make sure iran doesn't become nuclear. they gave the israelis all the information about where the sites were located. so they are valuable to us aus a source of information inside iran. we are cutting the source off. >> great to see you. >> thank you, megyn. good luck with the show. you're doing a great job. >> all the best to you. coming up, demands for accountability. why is the department of veteranses affairs spending
6:50pm
millions on parody videos like this? wait until you see when congress tried to get answers on that. and hannity coming up at the top of the hour. >> it forces you to have health insurance which i think is a remarkably good thing. >> health insurance includes all kinds of add-ons that various interest groups lobbied for. i'm paying for rogaine and birth control whether i want to or not. it's a transfer of money from me to you, from the poor to the rich. when we made our commitment to the gulf, bp had two big goals:

new details tonight on b an explosive hearing on capitol hill on wasteful spending by the veterans affairs department. after at least $6 million was spent on lavish conferences to train human resource workers in
6:54pm
2011. taxpayer money going to a $50,000 spoof of the movie "patton." really? this is what happened when a man who played a lead role in planninging the conferences was called before congress today. >> do you wish to make an opening statement? >> on the advice of counsel i respectfully decline to answer based on my 5th amendment constitutional privilege. >> when did you resign from the v.a. >> i decline to answer p based on my 5th amendment constitutional privilege. >> joining me now jesse jane duff from concerns veterans for america. good to see you back. >> thank you. >> this guy was forced to resign after this came out. the inspector general said all the money was spent and shouldn't have been. he pleads the 5th today. your reaction as a retired member of the military is what? >> he's spineless. how could he do this to the 22 million veterans that fought for the free come he has? for him to declare the 5th
6:55pm
amendment we sit back and we are appalled. we would be thrown in the the brig on active duty. there was no option to declare the 5th. that's repulsive. he should be accountable. we are leaders and understand leadership means being held accountable for wasting taxpayer dollars. meanwhile we have 500,000 veterans in a backlog awaiting benefits that they can't seem to resolve? >> you have all the workers -- and i can speak to this personally. my mother worked for the v.a. for decades as a nurse. you had workers doing their best to help veterans. they don't live large, trust me. they just want to help the vets. now you have executives out there, $50,000 on a "patton" spoof? that's an insult to those who serve and those who help those who serve. >> what was worse was it was a $6.1 million wasted on only 1rks -- 1800 employees. there are 300,000 employees.
6:56pm
you will throw this money down the drain while you have veterans on the appeals side over a quarter million waiting over 1200 days to have claims addressed? this money wasn't spent ek effectively. what about the $50 million in bonuses they hand out every year. meanwhile they are falling behind in getting the claims addressed. >> this guy refused to talk about it. >> we'll be right back. customizable charts, powerful screening tools, and guaranteed 1-second trades. and at the center of it all is a surprisingly low price -- just $7.95. in fact, fidelity gives you lower trade commissions than schwab, td ameritrade, and etrade. i'm monica santiago of fidelity investments, and low fees and commissions are another reason serious investors are choosing fidelity. now get 200 free trades when you open an account. and it feels like your lifeate revolves around your symptoms,
